2.  Standard, Economy or Custom?
Aside from the length of slipper required, it is important to make a decision based on the lifting capacity of your forklift and the maximum weight of the products to be lifted.

        b)  Safety
           ... your order will include a set of operating instructions and a pair of locking pins per slipper set
        c)  Australian Standards
           ... our Forklift Slippers have been designed and manufactured in accordance with Australian Standard
              AS 2359.15 in a high tensile grade steel. As per AS2359.15, forklift slippers designed for general usage
              should be no longer than 167% of the supporting forklift tine's length.

5.  Forklift Performance
        It is also important to note that use of tine extensions will no doubt increase the load centre of your Forklift Truck
        Tines which will result in de-rating of the forklifts lifting specifications. The resulting lifting capacity may be
        limited by either the forklift or the extended tines own capacity limitations. It would be worth gaining an
        understanding of this prior to use.

6.  Example
        If you needed a 2100mm long pair of slippers and you had forklift tines that measured 120 mm x 50 mm at the
        throat, you would need a pair of 2100mm (length option 'e') with pocket opening type (ii). Furthermore, type (i)
        would be too small (ie. not possible to insert tines), whilst type (iii) would be too big (ie. too loose, sloppy fit).
